Lyric Economies: Craft and Capitalism in Poetry

Join Will Cordeiro for a workshop that will include close reading, exercises, and discussions that focus on the intersection of poetic “craft” and capitalist practices. Attendees will examine poems that are about capital in some way (labor, material goods, desire) as well as poems where the form or writing process somehow attempts to disrupt the normal capitalist means of production and consumption. There will be opportunity to write and share prompts with Will and fellow attendees.

For additional poetry events, see 2021 Sunken Garden Poetry Festival or our Calendar.
